Easter has always been right up there for favorite holidays. I am not sure if was that as a Catholic fasting and finally be able to have my chocolate or diet coke on Easter, the Easter Egg hunt or the smell of incense at Good Friday services. (seriously loved that smell as a kid and now it bothers me.) Here are some of my favorite Registered Dietitian approved Easter recipes. Enjoy!
